Subject description: Looking good!
 

See announcement on my blog:

http://bkhome.org/blog2/?viewDetailed=00301

In particular, note the new IPC infrastructure.

This pup has the 3.9.5 kernel, i686, PAE-enabled.

Ray MK started a thread on the alpha1 release here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=86776

...I have fixed some bugs reported in that thread.

Feedback welcome!

This is great! The Intel video works perfectly. I'm uploading the iso & md5 to my little mirror (right now). Thanks again...

Raring Puppy 5.6.94 (5.7alpha2)
Live CD install, save to CD.

When programs are opened, the program window is not maximized.
If you select the full screen symbol (upper right of window) it gets slightly bigger but not maximized.
If you right click on title bar of window and choose maximize ,same thing, window only gets a little bigger.
Only way to make window bigger is to drag edges with mouse pointer.

Graphic settings were perfect on first boot.
Even the nouveau driver, seems to be working well, with my hardware.
Has been an issue in other versions of Puppy.
1680X1050 resolution.
Nvidia 560ti graphics card.

I used Unetbootin to install 5694 alpha2 to a 4gb flash drive.
I installed the proprietary nvidia driver for the card in this pc.
I installed xbmc and kdegames along with a couple of other
applications using ppm.
I have the same problem that I reported in alpha 1, after doing a
reboot sound and network are broken and not fixable, that I can do at
least.
Installing certain applications from ppm breaks sound and network.
This happens on two different computers that I've tested on.

EDIT:I moved the flash drive to another pc and I got the network
working again by loading the module listed in lspci.
I plugged in a usb sound card and loaded the bootmanager, added the
snd-usb kernel module and rebooted.
Sound and wireless network are working now on this pc.

Hi Barry

Pristine, frugal install....

I continue to have significant problems with this Raring version of Puppy on my HP550 Laptop (which works consistently well on all other Puppies):

    1. lots of (udev?) error messages flash up on boot

    2. dmesg and bootkernel.log shows a process crashing - see attached

    3. I'm unable to shutdown or reboot - the process freezes and can only be recovered by a hard switch-off.


I don't have any of these problems with pemasu's upup-raring-387

Regards
peebee

I had full install of 5.6.92 alpha 1 on ext4 partition

Downloaded delta files for alpha2, created new iso and did upgrade to full install

Looks good - no problems to report

Thanks Barry for all your hard work in keeping puppy alive.

pBackup is an unmaintained project, and is not looking good. I would be happy if it was removed from the iso.

Raring 5.6.94 ships pMusic-3.3.0. I recommend version 4.0.1. This requires the latest gtkdialog. pMusic-4.0.1 has grown, and now weight about 118kb, but it is loaded with goodies, so I don't think it is a waste of kb. On the other hand, the iso includes both pCD and the pMusic CD-player. pCD has not evolved in the same way that pMusic has, and the CD-player in pMusic is in better shape at the moment. pCD could leave the iso...

When it comes to pBurn, great stuff has entered with the release of version 4.0.0. BUT, this relies on cdrtools-3 which misses in your Puppies. Slacko and FatDog has moved on from the older cdrkit. If you stick to cdrkit, 3.7.18 is the right choice.

bootable usb 16 gig system memory

Audio, Viseo, Network function, save file created, settings save.

Speed changing directories, viewing directories is very slow....clicking on a directory within /root takes up to 5 minutes to display contents...and in many instances system is non-responsive at that point.

none of these problems with pemasu's upup-raring-387

Also, just was given an 5 year old eeePC and this boots and runs, too.

Will provide eeePC specs in a subsequent post to this thread.

@Barry
This is a request for consideration.

My router provides me the ability to designate by MAC address which can use my WiFi. As a further precaution, the router capably will match the hostname of the requesting PC with its MAC address before allowing it access to LAN services. This is an important authentication feature for devices on my LAN.

Your Firstrun Utility, unlike Shinobar's version which behaves different to yours, denies a PC the ability to set the hostname when it is booted without a "real" Ethernet cable plugged in.

I can see that you've also made a new change because the behavior in this version sets values when an ethernet cable in plugged-in where the desktop restart does not occur. I applaud your doing so for that behavior of FirstRUN.

Might you consider allowing FirstRUN to be able to set the hostname regardless whether it has a LAN cable plugged or not. I know there is much on your plate.

Thanks for any consideration as you move forward with this distro version.

I plugged my usb sound card into the computer from my previous

works fine too.

Running LIveCD system: Run JWM setup and scan system tools for issues. None, during the running.

Reboot with save-session to LiveCD. All goes well without issue on reboot to desktop. Systems find all as expected; namely swap and save-session. System behavior for videos and audio continues as before rebooting.

System behavior shows signs of problems after reboot

Icon Switcher effects and ROX error
During a mouse over, the Icon Switcher popped to desktop: OK, I'll bite...I change the icon to one of the more traditional sets. Minutes later, I open ROX and receive the error shown below.

Several minutes later as I navigate the mouse, the desktop's icons begin changing on their own as I mouse-over icons.

I then Menu>Desktop>Icon Switcher on several occasions and desktop icons to not return to their prior states.
